Subject: A TRUE CLASSIC
But, THESE Popeyes are the best! They weren't your average cartoon. The Fleischer productions were pieces of celluloid artwork, worthy of hanging in art galleries. The beautiful animation and multiple layered motion was such an amazing & new technique created by Max Fleischer. But, they quickly discovered that they had a major problem, when they failed to copyright their new technique, and Disney stole it & they filed copyright instead. But, Disney was so ruthless, they didn't just steal animation techniques, they also stole some of the greatest characters ever created.
And, although Disney may have survived for so long, and Fleischer studios closed down decades ago, the Fleischer's left us with several masterpieces on film, whether a short, or a full length feature like "Gulliver's Travels" (THE GREATEST ANIMATED MOVIE OF ALL TIMES).
They even produced an entire "Superman" series of shorts, which are so wonderful to watch. I have always loved the Fleischer's work, and have pretty much collected everything they've made on DVD, and enjoy watching them at 56 years of age as much as I enjoyed watching them at 5 years of age. They are an endearing part of my childhood. And, I will continue enjoying them for hopefully many years to come.

Subject: I am so gratified to see Popeye the Sailor meets Sinbad the Sailor!
This cartoon has Popeye and Sinbad (Bluto) competing for the title of Extra Special Kind Of Fellow i.e. World's Greatest Sailor. Olive does a great job of acting goofy while they fight it out with each other and various animals. My favorite character is the two-headed giant. Half of the time, his comments were so bizarre I couldn't understand what he was trying to say, but he's so ridiculous, who cares. Keep an eye out for Wimpy. He's trying to make hamburgers out of strange things.
Anyway, this is a terrific cartoon that was rated #17 on the list of all-time greatest cartoons. You've got to see it. It's bodacious!
